Because I don’t watch live TV much, I was completely late to the whole Boom de yada thing. When I first saw the XKCD strip I didn’t know what it referenced, but I liked it. Now that I’ve seen 10,000 things on YouTube taking after it, I decided to see the original. OMG so cute! No wonder it’s completely viral. The song and the sentiment are great. Plus, it’s catchy.
Anyway, while going through the YouTube playlist Discovery Channel is keeping of their favorite Boom de yada videos, I came across one of Mike Rowe leading some Discovery stars in an extended version of the song backed up by a chorus of cuuuuute kids and choir ladies. If you’ve ever wanted a longer than one minute version of the boom de yada song, check it out:
